RHESSI telescope decommissioned

After more than 16 years of successful operations since its launch in 2002, the X-ray space telescope RHESSI will be decommissioned on October 1, 2018. The on-board receiver has been slowly degrading since 2017, and commanding from the ground has become increasingly difficult. We have not been able to send commands successfully since mid-July 2018.

We will celebrate the successful mission at the Institute for Data Science with some wine, snacks and a short talk by it’s PI Säm Krucker highlighting RHESSI’S journey.

21 September, 17.30, section 5.2A. Everybody is welcome!
